Most people know Dianna Agron as the cheerleader, Quinn Fabray, on Glee, but in the upcoming movie The Family she’ll be playing an ex-mobster’s daughter, Belle Blake. Agron’s character in the movie definitely shows a side to her that no one has seen her do on screen before.
Her character looks like the typical innocent girl on the outside but if you get on her bad side she seems to not be a girl to mess with. In a clip from the film you get a glimpse of this bad ass side when a boy makes a move on Belle, and her character is less than thrilled about the unwanted advance. Her character reacts to the advances by pulling a tennis racquet out of the trunk of a car and proceeding to beat the boy to the ground.
Belle isn’t totally violent with every man in the film as Dianna Agron reveals that Belle might actually be a romantic at heart.
“I think that’s Belle’s one thing that she wants more than anything is to find a boy and have that fairytale romance ‘cause then she doesn’t have to go about the family business anymore, as much as she loves her family,”
Belle does find a little romance of her own which did lead to some quite steamy scenes that Dianna seems to be less than thrilled about her parent’s seeing these scenes.
"That was interesting filming those scenes, I don’t know if I want my parents seeing that. It’s going to be weird."
The Familywill be considered her first blockbuster film. With the cast of this film it’s a great first major film to be have a part in.
The upcoming dark action comedy film follows a mafia boss turn snitch. His family is forced by the Witness Protection Program to move to a small town in France. Agent Stansfield, played by Tommy Lee Jones, is put in charge of keeping the family in line. This family can’t seem to keep their old habits under control.
Handling problems their way Giovanni Manzoni/Fred Blake(Robert De Niro), his wife (Michelle Pfeiffer) and their two children, Belle (Dianna Agron) and Warren (John D’Leo), soon find themselves tracked down by the mafia men that they were supposed to be hiding from. Chaos takes over and the old scores must soon be settled.
With big name stars like Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Tommy Lee Jones, Luc Besson, and Martin Scorsese attached to the film it’s going to have some high expectations to live up too.
